Spectrum 3.8.0 release notes

July 4th at 3:46 pm
[3.8.0] - [2018-07-04] 

Hello everyone! We have some cool new features in our latest build for you: 
Friends, the Quick Access sidebar, and the ability to add a "Message of the Day" (MOTD) to chat lobbies.

Details below: 


- Notifications, Search, and Lobby Users have been moved to a Quick Access sidebar
- New and refined Settings page
- Member profile popup can now be accessed from the blocked users list by clicking on a member’s avatar
- The display of embedded medias in messages has been slightly tweaked


- Friends! You can now send friend requests to add other members to your friends list. Your friends and friend requests are easily accessible through the Quick Access sidebar. When you receive a friend request, you will see an orange dot on the friend icon at the top right. You can sort your friends by status or alphabetically, and see information about their activity. You can also group your friends by common orgs.

- Lobbies can now have a “Message of the Day” (MOTD). These show up first thing when someone joins the lobby. The message supports markdown link syntax. 

- Under general account settings (blocked users), you can now hide the author of blocked thread replies.



- Embedded media titles and description should no longer overlap on other UI elements
- You will no longer see reactions from blocked users 
- Max character error message showing wrong limit in the thread editor has been fixed
- Member profile no longer stays open when clicking an action
- Images pasted using URLs that have a query string will now work properly


Additional notes

- Limitations: you can have 800 maximum friends. This number is inclusive of pending friend requests.
- Your friends in-game will be linked to your Spectrum friends in the future. Currently, your Spectrum friends list and the list of your friends in-game coexist independently of each other.
- When the game is integrated with the Spectrum friends system, your in-game contacts will not be copied to your Spectrum friends list. 
- Use this transition period to add your in-game contacts to your Spectrum friends list.

      We are Black Star Initiative!
      Black Star Initiative is a UEE Aligned Anti-Piracy Private Military Corporation with 60% our focus on combat related security of UEE Space and 40% towards all other non-combat roles.
      We use a structured branch to organize players more efficiently. See link: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1Yc7m8bP8Izeg6x2QbtwaqqpmnMk1gtY1SRPLu9kM3mY/edit#slide=id.p3
      We do require all of our members (Non-combat also) to be willing to fight on notice as we are firstly a PMC and all other non-security jobs provide the backbone of operations.
      As well, we understand your primary gameplay focus might include additional non-related gameplay, IE A Primary focus on Bounty Hunting and a Secondary Focus on Agriculture.
      Our Hot List of combat and non-combat roles in-need: Fleet Bomber Crew/Bomber Pilots, Medics, Weapons Operators(Turrets/Torps), Boarding Ship Pilots.
      If any of the above fits planned play-style please note when responding. We are however also non-specific currently.

      It looks like when the old forums die, SimPits won't be a thing in Spectrum.
